    The cost of a communications seat has been relatively constant for a number of years, whether provided through Centrex, a premises-based PBX, a managed service, or today's cloud offerings. However, as the cloud communications market matures and enterprise acceptance of cloud-delivered communications services grows, the associated cost per seat is starting to drop. Just how low will it go? In this session, you'll learn about how the cloud is changing the communications business model and how this will affect the overall cost of services going forward.

    KEY QUESTIONS:

    • What evidence do we have today that per-seat pricing is dropping with the advance of more and more cloud communications services? Do the lower-priced services still provide the same level of service and feature/function that enterprises require?
    • What can we learn from the pricing disruptions cloud services have had on other markets, like CRM?
    • What's the long-term pricing outlook for cloud communications services, and how can enterprises account for those in their strategic planning today?
    • How will cloud churn affect prices and the overall business models for communications services going forward?
